It’s sale time at one of my favorite places to shop online – Shopbop!
There are so many sale guides out there and I also cringe about posting two “shopping” posts back to back (last one was Target’s Opalhouse line of home decor.)
BUT I get a lot of my basics from Shopbop and the sale is such a great opportunity to invest in some key pieces. So I’m going to keep this one nice and quick – a list of my personal wardrobe staples: neutrals, basics, and good cuts in every single color that it comes in.
Consider this a shortlist of my style go-to’s. Here you go!
S H O R T S
You’ve seen me wear the Agolde shorts in my stories (and above) and I am completely obsessed with them. I have the first color and am buying the lighter wash and the white ones. I am a 27 and got a 27 and they fit perfect. If you are in between sizes, I would say size down if anything. I have a similar chambray loose-fit drawstring short I got a couple years ago and love, and black tie waist shorts are by go-to’s for nighttime. (I love shorts with heels and a loose sweater or fun top at night.)
A P L S H O E S
Hands down my favorite shoes. I have the white, pink, day glo green, and a navy pair (no longer available) but found a black and pink one here for you that is also SO cute. I personally don’t like wearing black running shoes because I feel like it weighs down my look and cuts off my already short legs in a weird way. I don’t know why. Anyway, APL. YES.

If there is one thing I could consider a “staple” of my overall look, it’s white jeans. And J Brand makes my favorite. I have basically all of these – and two identical pairs of the ripped ones!

The Free People sweater is my current FAVORITE and what you see in the pic above. Love tie front tees, these flat front black aviators from Le Spec I wear all the time, a jumpsuit is always a classic and Black Halo knows how to make a flattering cut. Mother jeans are something I’ve been wanting to try so these high-rise ones are in my cart. I love dark almost black denim and of course, J Brand here as well. Madewell knows how to make a good tee and I just picked up this muscle tee the other day. Love.
N E U T R A L S H O E S
Studded gladiators are a summer staple and these by Ash are my current obsession. These block heel strappy sandals go with EVERY.THING. and are super stable to walk on (see me wearing them WITH KIDS, above and below!) The Sam Edleman black heel is one I go to all the time. And the strappy blush lower heel is a really great casual mid-heel look for when you’re dressed up but not tooooo dressed up. I wear them often with rompers.
M Y F A V E C O V E R U P
This is not a neutral but DEFINITELY a staple for me. I have it in pink, blue, and black and its been my go-to coverup for the past two years.
And that’s it! I’ll let the rest of the site speak to you and what catches your eye. But for new items for spring/summer I’m super excited about the pastel trend, really pretty floral patterns I’m seeing right now, and really great denim selections that aren’t weird crazy cuts. Simplicity at best.
Happy almost weekend!
